Dr Thi Bao Trang Nguyen

This project investigates the difficulties Vietnamese returnees encounter in doing research in their work contexts and identifies differences between low and high output returnees and initiatives.

Economy: Vietnam

Partnering Australian Institution: Macquarie University

Project Title: Developing a context-specific research-conducive model that integrates the cultivation of a research environment with facilitating research and enhancing research output for Vietnamese returnees

Project Outline:

Dr. Thi Bao Trang Nguyen's project investigates the difficulties Vietnamese returnees encounter in doing research in their work contexts and identifies differences between low and high output returnees and initiatives that address their needs.

Applied for fellowship:

"This fellowship is a rare opportunity for female researchers like me to conduct quality research with impact that would otherwise be impossible, preparing me to step into the wider research world with new knowledge and skills, and greater confidence, and to continue to grow as an independent researcher."

Past Achievements:

Trang is now a lecturer at the Department of English, Hue University of Foreign Languages, Vietnam. She worked as an English teacher at Quoc Hoc Hue High School for Gifted Students for many years. She was awarded an AusAID Scholarship to pursue Master studies in Applied Linguistics at the University of Queensland, Australia (2001) and an NZAID scholarship to undertake PhD research on task-based language teaching and learning at Victoria University, Wellington (VUW), New Zealand (2010). Upon completing her PhD research, she was honored to receive a Thesis Completion Award by VUW and an English-speaking Union Award for Teachers of English by the Commonwealth through VUW (2014). Recently, she won a prestigious Endeavour post-doctoral research fellowship to conduct research on how Vietnamese international students cope with universities in Sydney (May-November, 2016). Her proposed Australia-APEC research on Vietnamese returnees is a natural and necessary follow-up on her recent research in Australia.
